I have a bit of a shoe buying problem, which means it’s kind of amazing that in the nearly 5 years I’ve been running this blog I’ve only taken a picture of my newest footwear acquisition a handful of times. There are times when this blog could easily become a shoe blog based solely (ha!) on what I’m purchasing. I picked up these Jeffrey Campbell Brit Wrap Strap Booties ($230) and I to share them because they are easily one of my favorite shoe purchases in a good long while!
While I try to work the coupons and discounts, sometimes I see something and have to have it immediately. That’s how I felt about these boots. I spotted them online at Shopbop and purchased them right away, without ever having seen them in person or trying them on. I wouldn’t normally allow myself to spend so much on a pair of boots, but for as long as I have been writing this site I have wanted a pair of rock ‘n roll/biker boots and I never purchased a pair. If I amortize the cost of the boots over the past five years the price isn’t nearly so bad. And, now that I have these it’ll probably be quite a while before I’m even thinking about looking at another pair.
The reviews online said these boots ran about a half size big, so I sized down to an 8 and they fit perfectly! I have wide feet, which can be an issue with dress shoes, but was no issue with these boots.
Sometimes I do silly things. Last weekend was one of those times. I’d just received these boots in the mail and we were on our way to Ann Arbor for the weekend. Of course I had to bring them along! I spent an entire day walking around Ann Arbor in these boots, which would normally cause all sorts of foot issues, but from the moment I put these Jeffrey Campbell Brit Wrap Strap Booties on my feet it was like they were meant to be there. They didn’t hurt my feet that first day, nor did they cause any blisters. They fit well and are extremely comfortable. Now, I wear them every single chance I get.
What I love about these boots is that the actual leather on the boot is held in place by the extremely long leather strap that you wrap around your ankle. The only thing about the strap is that they can take a while to put on. The first time I wore them it probably took a full 10 minutes for me to get all strapped in correctly. But once they’re on I think they look great! They’re probably not going to be very practical once it starts snowing, but they’re perfect for the fall, spring, and dry winter days. I love that these moto boots looks just a little different from all of the other boots that are out there.
Wraps and buckles on boots are extremely popular this fall, though I haven’t seen too many pairs of boots quite like mine. I stopped in Steve Madden this morning though and did spot a good look for less.
It’s only available in brown online, but I spotted what I think is this Steve Madden Brewzer ($129.95) style at the Steve Madden store in black.
What boots are you rocking this fall?
